The Summit School

With a 4:1 ratio of students to staff , the school boasts a vibrant and dynamic program preparing students for mainstream settings after graduation. More than 90 percent matriculate to mainstream high schools; more than 85 percent then attend college.

Summit students are taught the importance of giving back to the world community and the local community, too. They organize projects to raise funds amongst themselves for Haiti and Japan; they participate in projects to bring food and clothing locally to those in need. Being a conscientious citizen is as important as learning to be a successful student at Summit.

The school has a thriving Outreach Program, offering tutoring, assessments, teacher training, and a summer camp. Tutors and teachers are highly trained in research-based strategies, proven successful for students with language-based learning differences. Specialized methods are used for instruction in reading, math, written language, and all content areas. Through foundation grants and donations, The Summit School has provided professional tutors for underserved children at the Boys and Girls Club and Stanton Center in Annapolis.

Growing scholarship dollars is a major goal of the school. Our hope is to fund any student who needs this unique program. Donors are asked to contact The Summit School’s development office to help families in need.
